Join us as we celebrate the 40 year anniversary of Superman the Movie and the 80 year anniversary of Superman in the comics.
As his doomed planet is about to explode, Jor-El sends his only son to Earth, where Jonathan & Martha Kent discover him in a farm field. They name him Clark and raise him as their own son until he realizes he has abilities unlike anyone else.After moving to Metropolis, Clark not only becomes a reporter, but finds his calling in the persona of Superman.
Until Christopher Nolan's Dark Knight series emerged, Superman was largely regarded as the Superhero go-to movie. Directed by Richard Donner, Superman features an all-star cast that includes Marlon Brando, Gene Hackman, Margot Kidder, Ned Beatty, Terence Stamp, Jackie Cooper, Glenn Ford, and Christopher Reeve as the Man of Steel. Composer John Williams received Oscar & Golden Globe nominations for his unforgettable score that won him a Grammy award.
Its summer time, so bring the family and join us in celebrating the anniversary of Superman. You'll believe a man can fly!
